Re: does goldwave have the feature to compare 2 tracks ?

You can Mix both tracks together and if they are identical you simply get double the volume. If they are entirely different recordings you'll hear an actual mix (a blend of both recordings) and probably an echo with the time differences so it should be pretty obvious that they are different recordin...

Re: bug amplitude stats crashed the program when i select a tiny portion of audio

Chris (GoldWave's developer) is the only one who can answer this, but "loudness" is related to the duration of the sound so it does take some time to get a meaningful result. I did some quick research about LUFS and I dug up this: - gating of 400 ms blocks (overlapping by 75%), where two thresholds ...

Re: Feature request: Floating point Playback Rate?

I seriously doubt the Windows drivers support that. The sample rate field in a WAV file header is an integer and I assume that's true for other formats too.

Re: Balance offset adjustement...

Run Tool -> Amplitude Statistics to find the LUFS Loudness of the left & right channels. Then subtract to find the difference. Then select one channel for editing and desired change the volume (by whatever dB required) of one channel to match the other. Reduce the louder channel rather than increasi...

Re: Record from both microphone and speaker

There are special applications such as Pamela for recording Skype.

By default, Windows only allows you to select one recording input/device and it requires special software to get-around that. The exception is that you can record the soundcard-output, which can be a mix.

Re: Does the quality degrade when editing MP3?

Yes. Editing will degrade an MP3 if you re-save it as MP3 because it's getting compressed again. If you save-as WAV (or FLAC) there will be no further degradation. (With lossy compression, data is thrown-away during compression, not during decompression and it's going to be decompressed when it's p...

Re: Feature Request: Noise Cancelling Filter

This is used in many places within the media industries, for example a news presenter on TV. I've never hear of that and there are a few problems - It will kill the stereo, it assumes that the noise is stereo but the signal is mono, and most mono sources (such as a single announcer) are recorded in...

Re: Phono Preamp to PC

FYI - GoldWave has a Noise Reduction filter and a Click/Pop filter, or there are specialized 3rd party applications . Wave Corrector is a fully-automatic de-clicker and it's now FREE. I've used Wave Repair ($30 USD) for a long time. It can do an audibly perfect repair on most (but not all) clicks &...

Re: Phono Preamp to PC

If you have a desktop/tower computer with a regular soundcard you can use the line-input and an analog phono preamp. I've got an old receiver with a built-in phono preamp and that's how I do it. The line-inputs on a regular soundcard are often quite good. As long as you don't get (excessive) noise, ...

Re: Tutorials ?

I'm not sure what link you're referring to, but do you have a specific question, or do you need help getting started? There is a 3rd-party web page called Transferring LPs to CDR with a ship-load of information (probably too much information). What equipment do you have? Do you have a line-level sig...

If you can give him any specific error messages or explain exactly what's happening, that will probably help...

Re: Goldwave 6.41 Unlicensed version

Thanks for your input DougDbug but you are totally incorrect. AC3 is standard on DVDs & Blu-Ray but its not supported by Windows Media Player and it's not mentioned at all in the GoldWave FAQ . If someone can please tell me what versions of FFmpeg/Libav decoders are compatible with Goldwave 6.41 I'...

Re: Goldwave 6.41 Unlicensed version

I'm pretty sure AC3 support is NOT built-into GoldWave and I don't think it's built-into Windows either so if it opens at all it's using some unknown 3rd-part party CODEC. I hate to mention this on the GoldWave forum, but... Audacity with the optional FFmpeg import/export library can handle most aud...
